You're right - I mean when I said crossed over into the big time I suppose I was not really being clear. Phish does sell a ton of tickets and draw a huge crowd everywhere they go...I guess I should have said more widely accepted and embraced by critics I suppose. Kind of like taking the "next step" is what I meant. Of course its all subjective, but I definately accept the fact that Phish basically sell out everywhere they go.

In the end I think they just arent taken seriously because they are so hoky. I dont get it and obviously never will when it comes to Phish and the like......I think that is saying a lot seeing as how OCD I am about music in general. They just seem fake, like posers knowingly putting out an intentionally nonsensical product which is a gimmick, and nothing more.

They do sell a buttload of tickets though. There is no denying that.
